Suspect remanded in pellet pistol case

Meanwhile, in an unrelated case, Joadth Michael Anderson, 32, from Kamloops appeared before a judicial justice on Jan. 6 and was remanded to appear in Kamloops Provincial Court today (Jan. 8, 2018) on several charges: Possession of a Weapon for a Dangerous Purpose, Pointing a Firearm and Failure to Comply with a Probation Order.

The charges are in connection with an incident Jan. 5 at 125 Palm St, Kamloops.
